The Acacia, more commonly known as the Mimosa, is a magnificent, yellow, fluttery springtime branch that is made up of hundreds of tiny flowers. Available for a few months in the early Spring, this branch is traditionally given to celebrate International Women’s Day, with the strong, beautiful branches representing the simultaneous strength and delicacy of women.
Please note that the stem quantities listed are approximate and may vary due to the mimosa being a natural product. Mimosa stems are abundant by nature.
Mimosa as a cut branch and will traditionally last 3-4 days in the right conditions. After this, you can remove water from your vase, and preserve Mimosa by drying. Leave in a dry vase, or tie and hang upside down for drying results. For vase life care:
- Recut stems at a sharp diagonal
- Split base of branch vertically about 1cm to allow water to move more easily up the stem
- Remove all excess foliage which would be below the level of the water
- Keep branches in a cooler area, away from direct heat, sunlight and any draughts
- It is crucial that you change water regularly
- If stems start to drop, to try and prolong, re-cut stems with a fresh diagonal cut and add tepid water, this will help hydrate and clear any small blockages in the stems
*As this is a naturally occurring product, there will be a slight size and colour variation throughout the season.
